    I recently (in the last week) switched from an Android device to an iPhone 6s. I am finding a couple little quirks that are driving me crazy. I'm not sure if it is related to the software version I am on or if there is anything I can do.

    The first issue I am having is: I like to read reviews a lot before I make a purchase. When I am on Walmart's website looking at reviews, as soon as the page finishes loading all reviews shorten to a certain length and are cut off ending in a "..." and there is no way to click on the review or lengthen it back to read the full review (and I am on the page that is supposed to show the full review). I'm finding this very frustrating.

    The other issue I am having is the formatting on some websites. A couple websites look jumbled with text overlapping (I think it is happening more if I am viewing them in desktop mode). I haven't done anything to my settings, they are in standard with no zoom. But I can't figure out how to fix it.

    I upgraded to iOS 9.2.1 right after I got the phone. So I can't figure out if it is a software issue, or just a weird quirk I can't fix. I also tried using chrome instead of Safari and still had the same issues. Has anyone encountered any of these issues or know anything I can do to fix them?

    The shortening of reviews is something that the website would be in control of. The layout could be either the website or the browser or combination of both.

    The strange thing is the reviews aren't shortened on my old phone or on my iPad. And if I can manage to stop the review page at the right time as it is still loading, then I can read the whole review on my iPhone...but as soon as the page finishes loading it automatically shortens it. So this still seems like an issue with my iPhone rather than the website. Really frustrating for me and I don't know where to look for a solution.

    It is not only in your phone. I just checked it for a curiosity, and reviews are shortened in iphone. And it doesnt matter whether you are using safari/opera/... Or mobile/desktop mode. I would send a feedback to walmart.

    Interesting. I'm glad to know it's not just me. I wish I knew what I could do about it. I sent the feedback like you said, I just wonder if they actually read/do anything about it.
